Donald Trump removes K.T. McFarland from NSC, but keeps Russia-connected Ezra Cohen-Watnick – Palmer Report

In other words, Trump personally wanted to make sure his Putin-connected National Security Council aide remain on the job, but made no move to retain National Security Council aide K.T. McFarland, who has no known ties to Putin or Russia. And in that regard, it raises questions as to why McFarland is being shipped all the way off to Singapore. She claims she requested the Ambassadorship (source: CNN), but people being moved from a more important to a less important job in an administration typically claim they wanted it that way whether it’s true or not.

So what’s the real motivation for these changes and non-changes in National Security Council personnel? The pattern is that Trump is keeping Putin-connected people and shipping out non-Putin-connected people. That suggests the NSC is just as Kremlin-controlled now as it was when Russian operative Michael Flynn was running it.
